* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', the lawyer Estermann boasts (on a radio talkshow, no less) that it was entirely inconceivable that the International Criminal Court would ever put Chrysalis on trial in The Hague, and that if they did, he'd eat his hat. It gets a CallBack in the next chapter, when Colm is surprised that Estermann's still wearing it.

* A variant in ''Chrome Circle'', by Creator/MercedesLackey and Larry Dixon, when Shar insists to herself that she had purely practical and impersonal reasons for expending magical energy to Heal Tannim ... and then admits mentally, "And pigs were certainly flying in tight formation over [=LaGuardia=] at this very moment."

* A recent Burger King ad played with this, when a customer notices an ad for bone-in fire-grilled ribs and expresses disbelief until a winged pig confirms it's true. Namely, a winged pig driving ''a truck''. The customer brings it up, and the pig explains that [[MundaneFantastic he's moving out of his mother's basement, and needs the truck to carry his stuff]].

* A 2015 Super Bowl commercial for Doritos showed a young boy asking an older guy, possibly his brother, if he can have Dorito. His brother tells him he can have one "when pigs fly." The boy is then shown working on some plans and then the scene changes to a pig flying on a rocket, after which the kid is given a Dorito. The commercial shows the kid then patting the pig on the back, it having apparently come out of the experience [[NoAnimalsWereHarmed no worse for the wear]]. "Good boy."

* ''WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers'' had WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck muttering "I'll be a musketeer when cows fall out of the sky!" Naturally, Clarabelle the Cow happens to be falling from the bridge above at that moment.
* Parodied in the [[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Toy Story short]] "Hawaiian Vacation", in which Woody decides to celebrate his vacation from Bonnie by playing checkers with Slinky Dog: Woody asks Slinky if he's ready to lose at checkers and the latter replies, "When pigs fly," which triggers this exchange between Hamm and Buttercup:

* If not that, then definitely ''Takeover: Brooklyn'', which may perhaps be the first time in WWE history that fans agreed the best match of the night was a ''Divas'' match (Wrestling/{{Bayley}} vs. Wrestling/SashaBanks) -- let alone that it is far-and-away the frontrunner for Match of the Year (rivaled only by the Lesnar/Cena/Rollins triple threat at the Royal Rumble). The last MOTY with that unanimous level of consent? John Cena vs. CM Punk at ''Money in the Bank'' 2011. It got the point that [[ToughActToFollow just having to follow that match]] was the biggest flaw of the [[Wrestling/KevinSteen Kevin Owens]] vs. [[Wrestling/FergalDevitt Finn Balor]] main event.
** Adding to that, for the first time ever, the WWE Divas got to headline a WWE special when the thirty minute Iron(wo)man (re)Match between Bayley and Sasha Banks was made the main event for ''Takeover: Respect''. If ''Brooklyn'' hadn't sent the pigs sailing, that sure as hell did.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'': Huey, after a number of odd schemes, fails to prevent the execution of an obviously innocent man on death row. Uncle Rukus, after some sort of near death experience in the beginning of the episode, claims to have spoken to God and creates an televangelical craze by claiming that hatred of black people, including self-hatred, can get one to heaven. As Rukus makes the standard "may I be struck by the Lord himself" a lighting bolt strikes the microphone in his hand. The electrical blast causes a blackout moments before the electric chair for the execution is activated. This is followed by the Governor finally calling to stay the execution.
* When ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' was {{Uncanceled}}, their very first scene back is Peter breaking the news to the family that their show has been axed by Creator/{{Fox}}. When asked why, he explains that Fox needs to make room for their hot new shows such as ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', ''Series/DarkAngel'', and about [[ScrewedByTheNetwork three dozen other programs]] which had come and gone in the period that ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' was on hiatus. When Lois asks if there's any hope, Peter replies sarcastically that they might have a shot if all those other shows get dropped. Roll opening credits.
